Road to the Altar: So Fascinating!

by Brittiny
Real Bride & Wedding Designer

I cannot help myself. I have to share my low-cost, DIY hair fascinator. If you have a Claire's, you're in luck!! A few weekends ago I scored this great fascinator for $2.75.

Here she is in all of her splendor.



Here she is after I did my thing:



Here's what I used to make it:
*
A flower or fascinator of your choosing ($2.75)
*
An old bracelet, some crystal beadings, loose crystals, or a brooch ($9.00)
*
a great pair of scissors (I had these already so free for me)
*
glue dots or Zots (I had these already but prices range from $4.00-$8.00)


First, I removed the center pollen, stigma, plastic stuff from the center. I must admit she was pretty cute with it, but I wanted some bling.



I used my handy zot (see picture above) to place the stone of your choice in the center (stone/bling, whatever you want to use). You can also use a glue dot or glue gun to attach your baby, if you are feeling really adventurous you can use a hair pin and bend it at the prongs when it goes in. I am lazy and decided to see what a glue zot could do. And below is the result. Total cost $11.75.


Now, this is way different from the original one that I liked but being $118.00 cheaper, I definitely think it was a steal versus splurge moment. Here is the original piece:
